This course aims to train young scientists in the available techniques in the field of life science Correlative Light Electron Microscopy.

Students will be given a theoretical overview of the techniques and the rationale behind why a particular method is applied to a scientific question will be discussed. After that they will get hands on experience of most of the techniques and they will be provided with practical tips and tricks by the experienced teaching staff.


This course aims at having a strong interaction / discussion between the students and the lecturers, where students are encouraged to challenge the techniques, propose alternatives, and discuss how CLEM can be applied to their own specific research questions. To this end a lot of the work will be performed in small groups with a high staff to student ratio (almost 1:1).

In our course, we have gathered (most of) the major labs that have developed CLEM techniques over the last decade, and the team has organized this "Practical Course on Correlative Light Electron Microscopy" for the last 2 years in Bristol with very positive feedback from the students.
